The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Post Navidad post

The day after Christmas and Christmas, itself, are very quiet here.  Things will pick up for New Year's Eve and then Tres Reyes, when children will receive gifts.... this year, a pony, for sure!  However, for now, the streets are relatively free of traffic, although there are lots of tourists around making all the restaurants and local businesses very happy.  The zocalo cafes are packed.... finally, after six months of sit-ins.  So the season continues and no better sign of it then all the piñatas one sees everywhere.
I love to watch folks make them.  Such a simple process, using  everyday materials, but like everything, it's an art.  This is just down the road from me.
